Teach yourself on youtube. Itís much better to buy a couple high-quality knives than to pay money for deer processing.

I had my first deer processed at bowmans. The ground they gave me was not edible... tasted like they ground up the tarsal into the meat.

If you can it would be better to do it yourself. Itís more satisfying, and you know itís yours. Plus itís a skill set thatís nice to have. The processing places, I donít trust you are necessarily getting all of your deer and not some of somebody elseís. Having done both though, I know sometimes you have to use a processor. If you have the hunting guide there should be a list or ads for them.

I watched a guy at a processor grind about 40 pounds of deer parts from several different deer at the same time. Into sleeves and distributed to different customers.

Processing on your own is the only way to go. Deer ain't beef. Not processing it well (and that's guaranteed from a processer - there is no way they can afford to spend the time required to strip silver skin, not saw through bone, etc) is a wasted effort.

Ya believe me Iím gonna learn but this is my first time really doing any hunting so. For this first time I just donít wanna mess it up. With it being around 60-70 degrees how much time do I have to have it all cut up and frozen ?
